Snakebite grooves for max spin on scoring shots

COBRA® Golf, a leader in golf club innovation, introduced the SNAKEBITE wedges in a new, Tour-preferred RAW finish. The new non-plated RAW finish will be available in all three grinds in the SNAKEBITE model. In addition, the game improvement SNAKEBITEx model will be available in additional loft options: 50-, 54- and 58-degree.

Cobra’s SNAKEBITE Grooves are built using a CNC Milling process to improve groove consistency, maximize volume, and deliver the most aggressive groove performance possible. Progressive spin technology optimizes performance by tailoring groove lengths and groove depth for each wedge loft.

The 48- and 54-degree lofts feature a traditional groove length and narrower and deeper grooves to deliver consistent spin and trajectories on the lower lofted wedges, while the 56–60-degree lofts feature full face groove length and wider and shallower grooves to maximize spin on shots struck with an open face. In addition, the 58- and 60-degree wedges feature a new versatile design that moves the classic COBRA® notch towards the heel for improved clubhead delivery through a variety of turf and sand conditions. 
“We have a longstanding tradition of producing raw wedges, a legacy that traces back to Phil Rodgers, who created the original Trusty Rusty for Cobra Golf,” said Chad DeHart, Product Line Manager at Cobra Golf. “This non-plated wedge offers a softer feel, tour-inspired aesthetics and delivers the performance golfers are seeking in all playing conditions.” 

All SNAKEBITE wedges, including the new RAW finish (£129 each), are available in three different grinds:
  • Versatile grind: an excellent all-around grind for medium to firm course conditions, featuring toe, heel and trailing edge relief.  
  • Classic grind: features a progressive sole width from heel-to-toe, with trailing edge relief, for neutral to steeper swings in a variety of course conditions.  
  • Widelow grind: a wide, low bounce sole works its magic out of soft bunkers and soft turf conditions and prevents the leading edge from digging.  
The SNAKEBITEx Wedge (£129) is a game improvement model featuring a HOLLOW CAVITY BACK DESIGN built with a SOFT TPU INSERT resulting in game-changing forgiveness and great feel. The wedge features full face SNAKEBITE grooves across all lofts to provide superior spin performance on any open face shots.

Additionally, the wedge is equipped with a new teardrop grind that provides versatility in any turf conditions. The SNAKEBITEx is offered in 48-, 50-, 52-, 54-, 56-, 58-, 60-degree lofts in a satin chrome finish.

Each SNAKEBITE Wedge features a black Lamkin Crossline grip. The SNAKEBITE and SNAKEBITE One Length Wedges come equipped with an aftermarket KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 (125g) steel shaft. The SNAKEBITEx Wedge is offered with a KBS MAX 85 (102g) steel shaft.

The SNAKEBITE wedges with RAW finish as well as the new SNAKEBITEx lofts will be available at retail as a custom product on March 8, 2024. For more information visit www.cobragolf.com.
